President and CEO of Wholesome Wave, and 2015 James Beard Humanitarian Of The Year, Michel Nischan will host Feed Your Mind 2015, with help from emcees Ji Suk Yi of Windy City Live and Mark Bazer of The Interview Show. This year, more than a 30 chefs and mixologists will donate their evening to serve signature tastings from some of the best restaurants in Chicago. The event will also include a live and silent auction featuring unique chef-curated items and experiences. 

Feed Your Mind 2014 raised more than $150,000 to support Pilot Light’s goal of empowering children to develop a healthy relationship with food through a standards-aligned classroom curriculum that weaves food education into school subjects, such as math, science, social studies, and English. All proceeds from the 2015 event will benefit Pilot Light, a 501(c)(3) organization, and Chicago school children.
